Mr. P. A. O'Farrell, of New York, writes to T. P. O'Connor, the prominent editor and member of Parliament in Great Britain. "In the ARROW LAKE DISTRICT, of B.

You are right in directing the attention of your readers to British Columbia.

The apples grown on the shores of these lakes are-the finest I ever tasted, finer even I have sampled from Lord Aberdeen's wonderful orchards about 50 miles further west. There is something in the sun, in the soil, in the serene atmosphere, in the ozone of these pure woods and in the absence of strong winds that permits the growth, and blossom and bloom of the apple in this country as nowhere else on and this is where you can secure a home by paying ?2 per acre per month.
